1 Publisher 2007: Part 2 Advanced Features Grouped Objects in Publisher: Most pre-designed publications in MS Publisher come with objects grouped together. Objects can be either multiple text boxes or an image paired with a text box. Examples: Click on the image once and if you see the symbol, point to it and can see Ungroup Objects, then these objects are grouped together. You may click to ungroup objects or click again and the objects will be regrouped. If you have ungrouped and changed your mind and would like to regroup objects, click on the border of the first image, hold down your shift or control button, then click on the border of the second image, group objects symbol should appear again for you to regroup. When you need to replace the image or text box that is in a group, you will have to click two times slowly (not a double click) until grey dots appear on the border of the image or text box. For an image, click on the image two times slowly. For a text box, click on the border of the text box two times slowly. See examples below. 1

15 Printing a Two-Sided Page (Duplex Printing) Print a publication on a printer that supports duplex printing Many printers support duplex printing, but they don't all make the duplex option available in the same way. With some desktop printers, choosing duplex means that the printer prints all of the copies of the first side of a page, then pauses and asks you to flip the sheets that it just printed and return them to the printer, after which it prints all of the copies of the second side. This method is called manual duplexing. To print on both sides of a sheet of paper: 1. From the File menu, click Print. 2. Click Properties. Note The information in the Properties dialog box varies depending upon the manufacturer of the printer you're using. With some printers, you will see a Layout tab with a Print on both sides option on it. With other printers, you might see a Features tab, and the duplex option might be called something like Two-sided printing. Explore the various tabs in the Properties dialog box until you locate the duplex printing option. 3. Click OK to close the Properties dialog box, and then click OK again to close the Print dialog box and print your publication. Print a publication on a printer that does not support duplex printing Even if your printer does not support duplex printing, you can still produce a doublesided publication. Display the side of the publication that you want to print first. In the Print dialog box, under Print Range, click Current page. When the print run of the first side is complete, flip the sheets over and reinsert them into the printer, and then print the other side. 15
